WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - Maui is considering making walking more pleasant for pedestrians and bicycle riding nicer for cyclists.
The Maui News reported Tuesday that one idea is to install raised speed tables - which are similar to longer, flatter speed bumps - in Wailuku. Another is to plant trees along sidewalks in Kahului and Wailuku.
The Nutrition & Physical Activity Coalition of Maui County and the urban planning firm Chris Hart & Partners are studying ways to make it safer and easier to walk or ride a bicycle.
They hope to help people be active on a daily basis.
Organizers are holding a meeting in Kahului on Thursday to hear public comment. They hope to compile their recommendations by June and submit them to county and state officials.
